Tomorrow’s Sportive cycling event has been cancelled due to the heavy rain.
In a statement on their website, UK Cycling Events said,
“Due to extreme weather the event center and parts of the course have been flooded. Sunday’s (14th April) Wiggle New Forest Spring Sportive has unfortunately been POSTPONED. We are currently working on a rescheduled date for Saturday 1st June.
Riders who cannot make the re-scheduled date will also be given the option to transfer to three similar Wiggle Super Series events.
We will be in touch via e-mail over the next few days with further details.”
Early reports of today’s event are good, weather excepted.
- As we suspected no ponies or horses were hurt during the event.
- Some of the riders are aching though (and wet).
- Reports of a rain dance involving some cycle event critics can not be confirmed at this time.
